Diaper Rash - Austin, TX
Usually when my daughter has diaper rash we use balmex and baby powder. I was wondering if we need to use the baby powder in addition to the balmex. Is it better to use the powder or just use the balmex without the powder.

The best thing to do for diaper rash is to give it fresh air. First wash area with mild soap and water and pat it dry. If she is asleep let her sleep with no diaper or even put a small fan near her butt. Even when your able, let her wear underwear, diapers do keep the moisture in and it is harder to heal.

I'm not a big powder person, probably because it's a little messy. When we had our 1st baby, our doctor recommended A & D (vitamin A & D) the ointment, not cream.
We love it. We use it all the time & no diaper rash. If they do get a rash, it clears it up fast w/ out a mess!

I've always just used Boudreaux Butt Paste. It seems to work better than the other diaper cremes for us. I've never used baby powder.
Sometimes when a rash was particularly bad I let them get some air-dry time by letting them run around diaper-less in the back yard. (or crawl around on a blanket if they were younger).
